Old old bike

Postby codyc » Sat Jun 09, 2012 9:59 pm

Hi guys,
I tried posting this on the "identify" section but got nothing..I need some help identifying this bike.. the photo is of my great grandparents and my grandmother as a baby. my grandmother was born in 1914 and looks to be no older than 2 in the photo so my best guess is that the bike is anywhere between 1910-1916. They were Italian, but i think this photo was taken in the States..Thanks!

The bike is a 1915~16 Indian Powerplus. Has the earlier pre 1917 forks and controls. What makes this photo confusing is that it has been transposed or reversed during printing. The sidecar should be on the other side. What you are actually looking at is the lefthand side of the bike. Regards from Barnstormers.co.nz

Old motorbikes are always looks better than other bikes because it was always made from hard material and because of it individuals was choose it more and more to drive. Well, this bike seems excellent in image.
